Have you guys been pulled over?

What's up guys,

I was just wondering if you guys have ever been pulled over for your mods? I'm getting an exhaust put on along with the tint, wheels, intake, and springs that I already have on the car and was afraid that I would be proned for getting pulled over. I mean my tint is extremely dark! I can't exaggerate enough, the whole car has tint including the windshield. Then with the black wheels and being lowered, I feel like putting the exhaust on would just be asking to get pulled over.

Share your stories!

I also included a picture of inside the car with the tint and an exterior view while the car was getting towed.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

I've gotten pulled over 3 times now for my exhaust. Have gotten 2 fix it tickets for it almost back to back (Different counties) all in this month hahaha. But it really depends on the cops in your area. The cops where I live get you for any little thing possible.

Just tell the officer you bought it like that and are in the process of "fixing the issue" once you get the money together...

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

Depends where you live. Here in California cops are douche bags. I haven't got stopped til this day. I got stopped one time at night when its quite as fhuck but had another exhaust and never got stopped for it again. Haven't got stopped with my Greddy exhaust except for this one time but it was because some theft occurred in my area and some people got mugged so they used that as an excuse just to stop me. Theres this other time where I got stopped with a few other cars including a 4th gen prelude and I was told by the cop that I was "heavily modified" and that my "front brace" was illegal and that I was too low and my Konig rims where "illegal" aswell. lol I got no ticket so I must have not been modified enough lol

:'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''( been using that one for over a year glad im not the only one LOL




from what ive experienced if you aren't driving like an asshole such as speeding, weaving in and out or trying to evade then you most likely wont get pulled over. just stick to the speed limit and keep the car in control you will be fine.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

Agreed, depends on the area and how the cops are.


I never had an issue with my Evo2, but unless i manage to tone down the 3" after it's done - i might have an issue.


your darker tint will draw a little more attention with the exhaust combo.... but only one way to find out!!

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

I get pulled over for the stupidest stuff.

-When I had my Wrangler, I got followed home by a cop who proceeded to crawl under to make sure I had a catalytic converter. I had a high flow cat, 3in piping, and a Flowmaster 40, so it's kinda loud. Not extremely though.

-My Xterra has 5% tint that I installed OVER the factory tint, so I dunno how dark that makes it. It was dark enough to look though two side windows and see the eclipse with no sunglasses. Yet I haven't been pulled over for that. They have, however, pulled me over twice for my tinted licence plate cover (it's not even that dark), and another time for my license plate light flickering. On this vehicle I have headers, no resonator, and Flowmaster Super 44 with a turndown. I blast the hell outta the stereo but for not having sound insulation like Dynamat, it contains the sound pretty well.

-The only time I've been pulled over in my car other than speeding was for my stereo being too loud in a county where noise ordinance is enforced. But then again I don't have anything done to my car yet.


The first pic you can see the license plate cover. Not dark at all, but for some reason the cops hate it.
Second pic is how I bump
Third shows how I tinted the windows. Notice you can't see out (or in) the back ones :)

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

I got nailed doing 115MPH down the Cajon pass one morning on my way to work. My CDL saved my ass because the cop decided to write me a ticket for doing 85 instead because of it. Could have taken my license and impounded my car.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

I was pulled over one time for going 80mph in a 45. I was following my gf home and she had no tags on her car so I was trying to quickly catch up to her and get behind her so no cops could see she had no tags.
They pulled me over one street away from her house. I said I was going to a friends house. He started asking if I was going there to do drugs or drink a lil bit. I said no. A second cop came and they started going back and forth. I finally said "look Im going to my girlfriends house". The cop then said "ohhhh I get it now. Trying to get there before momma gets home so you can get in a lil quickie." Lol. He ended up letting me go just because I said I was going to my girlfriends house. Weird.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

^LOL thats hilarious. I've never gotten pulled over but I've only been driving for 6 months lol. My tint is pretty dark but I think 20% is legal pretty much anywhere. Im getting a Apexi WS2 but I doubt I'll attract cops with it. Also I have two some what illegal thing my rear turn signals are hyper bright white LED's without the amber piece 3 months no cops messing with me yet, law here requires red/amber only. And I don't have my front liscense plate on, i personally think it's ugly lol but no cops yet I don't think they care here.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

One time I had a COUPLE empty cigar cases, along with a BOX of zip-lock bag's in my backseat. Needless to say, it took a lot of convincing on my part to finally make him believe that I wasn't a drug dealer

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

hahaha when i was 18 me n 3 friends were sitting in my car smokin during a party at my boys house, so we get through 2 blunts, half way between a third blunt n my boy was rollin up another blunt about to get light up. so we had an unopened beer in the car n a half-o of some bud. so were sitting there in the extremely foggy car n i look out my left mirror n i see a cop car so i was like holy **** n started to eat the half way done blunt n my boy is devouring the one he just rolled up while hiding the beer in the glove box and the bud behind the glove box. next thing i know i see 2 more cop cars roll up n 3-4 cops come around my car n start walking over. so we are sitting in the massive cloud of smoke n this black cop comes up n sees me in the driver seat n goes DRIVER OPEN THE WINDOW im like uhh the car isnt on so i cant n he opens the door n BAM de-fog right in his face LOL another cop comes over n opens my friends door n sees some lil weed scraps on his shorts with the flashlight n says dont ****ing more. so the cop moves the light n my boy wipes his shorts into the grass :'( so now we are all taken out the car n told to sit on the sidewalk. 2 cops are searching my car n find the unopened beer n go uhh wheres the weed/bongs/pipes LOL so they keep searching my car n now open my trunk and even more smoke is pouring out of it n one cop starts asking me about my 2 12 JL audio w3s :'( so now we are sitting here there for 25 mins and the shift supervisior comes to the house n is asking about why there was so much smoke n no weed. so my friend tells the cops that i had let some guy n his girl go sit in my car n talk about some problems they were having n that we didnt know they were gonna be smoking in there. so the cops asked where they were n my boy quickly said they left here about 5-10 min before u came n left in a black honda civic n the supervisor goes oh really we just pulled them over before i came here so i guess the story adds up, while one cop is so pissed off saying this is bull**** i know theres more drugs here and this isnt a real story.. the cops ended up letting everyone after the rest of the party was broken up

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

I've been pulled over 8 times! 2 tickets. 1 for tint (which is not that dark) 1 for muffler (which is not loud at all) and the rest just because. 5mph over, yellow light, rolling stop, stupid stuff! Cops just notice my car to much lol

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

Here's a couple of tricks to get out of tickets I've used.
(bare in mind I'm a insurance agent and know a few things too)

1. To get out of speeding tickets. Be cool but act like u have diarrhea lol.
2. Also to get out speeding tickets try to not go over 10mph most police allow u to go 5-8 mph over
3. Ask how they like being a cop and that u have a few buddy's that are cops and bs with them works everytime...

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

6 times so far since I been living in Florida. 4 for my exhaust 1 for my system and 1 for speeding which I ended up going to jail for after court. But it's my exhaust that kills it for me but I have no intentions of removing it. I just gotta stop increasing the gas while a cop is near me.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

Got pulled over for tint once in the two and a half years I've owned my Prelude. Cop pulled me over at night on a road with shoddy lighting, and said he pulled me over because my tint was too dark and "couldn't see a thing" inside my car. I told him frankly but courteously that he's not GOING to see anything inside my car at night due to the fact that the rear windshield has such an aggressive angle and my interior is all black leather. He asked me to roll my window up a bit so he could see it. He shined his flashlight against the tint and said it still looked a bit dark and what VLT it was. I told him "I dunno, I told the shop to do whatever was legal". Of course, it's not terribly dark, but about 10% under the legal limit. He told me I should "get it checked just to be sure". Sure thing, Mr. Officer, I'll get right on that.

After that, I was on my merry way.

Re: Have you guys been pulled over?

Huh... all these random stories about getting pulled over, and only a few relate to the original question asked. guess i'll share a story just to feel "cool"



I got pulled over in the rain, on the highway, in rush our, while at my old job in a 12,000lb bucket van.


Inspection was expired - not my problem, parts were on order, company vehicle - what else can I do since I need to work every day...

...And the cop said I was doing 85 in a 55. I admit doing 65 tops, but no way in hell could I get that van up to 85 on the road I was on... he "cut me a brake" and wrote me up for 65 in a 55. This was my first time ever getting pulled over - **** should have been waived and been sent on my merry way.


And as always - the cop pulls me over being the biggest and most eye-catching vehicle on the road, while others are going faster than me...

And I don't have my front liscense plate on, i personally think it's ugly lol but no cops yet I don't think they care here.
To add about the tint and exhaust... depending on where you live;

some areas don't allow tint on any of the windows - some push it as far as saying factory tint is not allowed either

Also, all states have some form of limit to what you can do to your front driver side and passenger windows.

tinting the windshield is usually illegal in most states with a form of inspection

but most people bs their doctors to writing a medical note in order to get a permit for darker than allowed tint.



As far as I know, "modifying" an exhaust in any state is deemed illegal. But most states don't even bother with it unless it's noticeably louder... or you drive a Honda lol
